Body wraps have long been used as a detox treatment at spas and health clinics, but there are a few distinct treatments that can also help you lose weight. The main goal of a body wrap is to increase circulation in your muscles and open up the skin’s pores; if the wrap contains herbal infusions and oil, these can easily seep into the skin to give you that refreshing glow.
However, some of these oils and ingredients can also help reduce bloating, loosen toxins in the body, and can even reduce the visibility of cellulite. The result? Firmer skin tone and a few inches and pounds off your frame. If you’re heading to the wellness center for a body wrap or to a spa such as Medi Spa specializes in CoolSculpting, here your best bets for shaving off a few inches in the process:
Mineral Body Wraps for Weight Loss
Mineral body wraps are designed to detoxify and cleanse the body inside and out and reportedly tighten and tone the skin in the process. By making the skin more supple and smooth, cellulite seems to disappear. Body and Soul Spa in Arizona specializes in a Slenderizing Mineral Body Wrap that guarantees a weight loss of 8-30 inches after just one session. Call (480) 368-0022 for more information.
Lipase Body Wraps for Weight Loss
Suddenly Slender is a franchise specializing in body wraps and treatments to tighten and tone the body. The Lipase Body Wrap treatment is a two-step treatment that aims to break down the appearance of fat near the skin’s surface by wrapping the body in an enzyme solution, followed by a second bandage soaked in a mineral solution. The entire treatment is designed to remove ‘hard fat tissue’ from the body during the first phase, then soften and tone the skin during the second phase. Call (800) 221-6793 for more information.
Heat Body Wraps for Weight Loss
Instead of wrapping yourself in blankets and towels to stimulate the skin and cells, a dry heat body wrap is another option for firming and toning the skin. Bella Fontana Spa is a medical spa in Sherman, Texas that specializes in a variety of body spa treatments, facials, and massage therapy. Body wraps here are delivered in the Hydrotherm3, a capsule that surrounds the body with heat and steam, and delivers a hydromassage in the process. The Thermal Detoxifying Treatment at this spa is designed to slim down and tone the body by increasing circulation and detoxifying the body.
European Body Wraps for Weight Loss
If you’re looking for an intensive head-to-toe treatment that reduces the appearance of stretch marks and leaves skin super smooth and silky, a European body wrap may be your best choice. Calistoga Golden Haven Hot Springs Spa in California offers a premium European Body Wrap that promises a loss of between 6-28 inches and a reduction of cellulite and stretch marks.

From steam wraps to mineral infusions, there are a number of specialized body wraps and treatments that may just help you shave off some inches and drop a few pounds. While results vary by individual, the average amount lost is between 10-15 inches but the weight will come back on after a few days; at the very least, you’ll be able to squeeze into your ‘skinny jeans’ for the day.
